Commission : Croc Trio by LoorTheDarkElf
Commission : Croc Trio
A commission for Tumblr user the-schwayest-batman-around, who wanted art for a trio of OCs they created for the Batman Beyond universe. These guys are splicers who felt Killer Croc was the strongest rogue to ever roam Gotham, and wanted to emulate him. Total work time was 6 hours and 50 minutes, and the client paid a total of 63.35$ USD for the finished work. 

The Time-Lapse of this piece can be found here:…

If you want to commission me, just shoot me a message! Details of my commission rates can be found here on DA:…

Or here on Tumblr:…

Thank you to everyone who's supported me so far in this! This is my very first commission, and I'm hoping it's the first of many. :)
Commission finished! I'm just waiting for the client to pay before I post it, and then I will be able to get to work on the next one. Productivity for the win! WOO!
Aristel is so Done - COMMISSION TEST by LoorTheDarkElf
Aristel is so Done - COMMISSION TEST
A quick and dirty sketch of Aristel to test my times on faster pieces like this. This piece took approximately 45 minutes, and thus, for a client, would only cost 5$ for a fair-quality black-and-white piece. As part of the test, I recorded the making of this via livestream, and timeplased the footage, which can be found on Youtube.

Timelapse Link:

I'm currently working on a larger project over on Tumblr, after which I will FINALLY be able to get down to business and produce a commission I promised to a user here on DA. I'll be posting my finished works here, with their time lapse links, so look forward to that. :D 
Aristel Kiebeth - Clothing and Expression Tests by LoorTheDarkElf
Aristel Kiebeth - Clothing and Expression Tests
A little something of Ari that's not from any of my (many) AUs with her; just some simple clothing and expression tests that were, in part, helping me get used to photoshop. I have to say, I'm really enjoying the program. I resisted it for YEARS but once I bit the bullet and finally did it, it was only confusing and frustrating for like the first day. I just kept trying, finding new things, and eventually it was like 'whoa, that was ME?'

So yeah, fairly pleased with how all this came out. As you may notice by the drab shadows, this is simple shading done by layering semi-translucent layers of black over one another. It's something that allows me to produce a finished piece quickly and with minimal fuss, and usually my style of choice for comics I attempt to make. Who knows, maybe I'll try to pick that stuff up again, now that I have a more co-operative system... 

We shall see!

Aristel Kiebeth is mine, please do not steal, please do not use without permission.

HOLY CRAP It's been a long time since we've updated this. Alrighty, I am a digital artist who works with MS Paint and Paint.NET, usually producing fanart but original art does happen every now and again. My major fandoms (right now) are Jak and Daxter, Batman, and Naruto. I write fanfiction often with the use of OCs, and am the Author behind the Vacation or War series on

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the time has come. I am finally opening myself up for artistic commissions. You can find many examples of my work both here and here. Let’s talk about how this is going to work. 


For my own security to ensure I do not spend hours on a piece only to find out my client cannot pay me or was never planning on paying me, clients will pay me 5$ USD upon beginning their commission. This pays for the first hour of work. If you were only commissioning a small sketch or head-shot, and it is finished within an hour, I will consider the work fully paid for. After that, my rate is 10$ USD an hour. Once a piece is finished, I will require full payment of its final price before posting it to my gallery on DA, as well delivering the image file to the client’s e-mail, if requested. 

:But Loor, how do I know you’re being honest about your work time?:

All commissions will be recorded on medium-quality via LiveStream. As far as I know, this is a record that can’t be tampered with of time I have spent working, and clearly documents exactly how much time was taken on a piece, a record that anyone can check. Also, as a bonus, you can watch as your commission takes shape, though I will not be interacting with the chat-box as I do not want to be distracted. 

:What you can ask for: 

The artist is comfortable with sexual themes between all kinds of couples, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or number of participants. However, I will not create art of obvious pedophilia, rape, or other non-consensual acts. Also, for sexually explicit pictures, I will require that the client provide some kind of visual reference of the position/pose they want. 

I am fully comfortable with drawing OCs, but again, request some kind of visual reference on what they look like. Same goes for drawing canon RP muses for which the mun has a specific FC in mind. 

Other than that, the field is pretty open. 

:Okay, sounds cool, how do I hire you?: 

Send a message on my Tumblr [], through the messaging system on DeviantArt, or to my e-mail . In the case of messages that can be titled, title it ‘Commission’ and include a description of what you want, any limitations in budget I should know about, if there’s a specific style of art you would like for the piece, and links/attachments/photos of any applicable reference material. Also, if you happened to see my advertised elsewhere, please include the username of whomever was promoting or recommended me. I will respond to ask questions if I need clarification, decline the commission if I feel it is outside of my ability to deliver a quality product, or confirm, give an estimate on how much it should cost, and provide instructions for the hiring payment to go to my PayPal account. Once that is received, I will begin work, all of which will be recorded via LiveStream. 

:I love your work, but I can’t afford you. Is there an option for the broke people of the internet?: 

Yes! yes there is. If a client hires me and mentions that you promoted/recommended me/they heard about me from your blog/website/whatever, I will award you a free hour of work! I will keep track of free hours on my computer, as well as notify you that someone mentioned you. You can use this free hour right away for a free sketch or mugshot, or something else small, or you can save them up for something bigger. You can also use these free hours to knock down the price of a larger commission. For example: You have three free hours, and commission me for a piece that takes five. Those three free hours knock 30$ USD off of the price, resulting in you only having to pay 15$

Free hours can also be used to wave the 5$ hiring/first hour fee, but I will always use them to knock off full-priced hours first.

And yes, I will always ask clients where they heard of me if they fail to mention it initially. 

So! Them’s the ropes. If this goes well, I may give my commissioning work a devoted blog of its own. Either way, I look forward with doing business with you. :)

Hey, you wouldn't happen to have a Flight Rising account, would you? If you do I think I just found it. :meow:
LoorTheDarkElf Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed I do! You know you've find my account if the first three dragons in my lair are Jak, Loor, and Daxter. :) I'm currently working on getting a Ripple gene for Dax. 
GuardianOfEnergy Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Daxter is going to look awesome with that gene! Did you completly gene him or did he already have Eye Spots and Underbelly? Would you at all mind if I sent over a friend request? My username is the same with the exception of the dashes.
